I run Ubuntu 10.04 on a PackardBell laptop, with an Orange Livebox 2 providing ADSL. I am connected to the Livebox via WiFi, but I can't connect using the ethernet cable. I think that in making changes to the system some time ago I must have ruined something, but I can't work out what.
I have just installed ubuntu 10.04 using the wubi installer to dual-boot my machine. Under ubuntu, I am not able to connect to the internet or my router. Everything works fine under windows. I have tried to find relevant information in the forums, but nothing seems to work for me. I have tried disabling ipv6, setting a static ip, but no go. ifconfig shows no IP, dhclient results in no DHCP offers and pinging my router's IP results in Network is Unreachable.
I have just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on an HP Pavilion dv6000 series laptop, dual-boot. Everything is working except the networking. It can see wireless networks, and when I type in the password for my wireless network, it tries to connect, then asks for the password again. When I plug in the Ethernet cable, again it tries to connect, but after a few seconds gives up and tells me I am now offline.
cannot connect to my window computer using open SuSe
I am attempting to connect to my Windows Computer via a wired network on a sky router. When I tried with PClinuxOS it configured automatically. With the latest version of open SuSe 13.1this is quite a bit different. I have got as far as the network being auto and active with an Icon showing on the taskbar. However when I click on the Windows network Icon SuSe tyies to locate my Computer but then comes back with " failed to reteive share list from server. This is as far as I can get after several hours of trying.
I just upgraded to Fedora 13 (from 10, using preupgrade), and I've gotten most things working again, but I'm still having trouble with the network.My wired connection (eth0) doesn't connect on boot (even though ONBOOT=yes in /usr/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0).Because of that, I figured I'd just leave eth0 connected manually (with ifup eth0). However, I then found that if I try to connect to a VPN like this, the system reverts to the "stalling every time I try to connect to the internet" problem that I had earlier.
Yesterday I moved my modem (wireless) to my living room so the PS3 detected a better signal. In doing so, I had to run a new ethernet cable from my living room where the modem is into my office where the computer is. I use ubuntu 9.10
For some reason I cannot connect to the internet now. When I scroll over the connection, it says wire connection 1 is active. I have my settings manually set. I did notice the MAC address field is blank...
I didn't have an issue before, but with changing cables and whatnot, something got messed up somehow.
I am unable to connect to any network, wired or wireless. Network-manager and wicd are both gone, as in no longer installed. Please don't tell me to apt-get anything. I have no network connection. I have tried downloading packages for nm onto a usb stick only to find myself in dependency hell which ended with the impassible error "Requires installation of untrusted packages".
I've been struggling with this a bit now, and I'm not sure what the problem is. I have a laptop with a BCM4401 Ethernet card as well as a BCM4311 Wireless card. The wireless card works great out of the box, I'm able to connect with it perfectly. The problem is the ethernet card. Here is the situation: The NetworkManager menu doesn't list "Wired Networks" at all (ie. it doesn't say "not managed", it just only lists Wireless networks) Going into Network Connections, there is an "Auto eth0" entry ifconfig shows eth0 (which I assume means NetworkManager isn't managing eth0) I have edited /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf to say managed=true I have edited /etc/network/interfaces to remove any mention of eth0 (all that's left is the "lo" lines) So I'm not sure why eth0 is still showing up when I run ifconfig, and why Network Manager is not managing it. Any ideas?
Edit: Not sure what I did but now ifconfig spits out this:
Code: eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1c:26:2c:60:75 inet addr:10.0.1.12 Bcast:10.0.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::21c:26ff:fe2c:6075/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
The MAC address of the "Auto eth0" entry is 00:1C:23:8F:D4:39, the same as the eth1 entry that ifconfig spits out.
It was working just fine, until the other day I yanked it out. The wireless works just fine on the same router. If I login to a windows 7 instance on this dual boot laptop then the ehternet works just fine. So it's not a hardware, cable or router issue. The card even gets an ip, but I can't connect to the internet.
I'm stuck after a clean install of FC14 on an old Everex StepNote (Doing this for a friend). I tried Ubuntu on it first (because it's so easy) but had horrible stability issues and terminal commands wouldn't respond - however Ubuntu detected and ran the eth0 port just fine. FC14 detects my ethernet NIC, but it won't work.
Here are my details. lspci outputs this for my NIC: 00:12:0 Ethernet controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6102 [Rhine-II] (rev 7c)
Here is what I have tried so far - with no luck: - I have toggled the networking switch on the laptop and had no luck. - Downloaded Via's VT6102 drivers for Fedora Core, but they don't support kernel 2.6.35.* - Run ifconfig to manually assign an IP address - which it DID take and did route add default gw as well. - Did a ifconfig eth0 down and up as well.
After all that, I still have a "disconnected" wired connection (and yes, I did check the cable - it works just fine in my personal machine.
I have a HP Mini running Ubuntu Desktop 10.04, and I cannot get a wired connection to work. My network card is "Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01)", and I have the restricted drivers for the card installed. Wireless works fine, though.
I've got Puppy Linux on a USB key, and yesterday, while I was on the internet with it, it hanged. I didn't know what to do, and I rebooted from the button (I now know what to do ). The problem is that, after rebooting, Puppy doesn't recognise the router. I've tried to apply the drivers that are on Puppy, but there aren't any compatible.
My router is a Xavi 7968 and my Network Card is:
NIC Fast Ethernet PCI Familia RTL 8139 from Realtek
(On Realtek's website, there isn't any driver linux-compatible)
Just noticed that auto connection to my wired ethernet is not being established after restarts I'm making. Never recall this in the past. I do get an auto connect when I shutdown and restart. I'm using 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx.
Also have noticed that nearly every upgrade over the past week or so is calling for restart to complete the upgrade. Can there be any unwanted problems in doing several upgrades over a period of several days before doing the restart? I'd like to think not.
As you can imagine these two issues together are causing some lost time.
I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 using Wubi through Windows 7. It seems to be working but it will not connect to my wired internet connection. It tells me there is no wired connection, when there is. I used sysinfo and its not showing any network adapter or controller. I have a board with nvidia nforce go 430, could it be a driver issue. It works fine in windows though. Tried using a wireless adapter and all is working. But why doesn't the wired ethernet connection work.
I have a generic P4 desktop computer with Debian Squeeze. Since instalation my wired ethernet connection will slowely slow down and then quit when surfing the web. Sometimes it seems worse than othertimes. If it fails I usualy can get it to come back back up by going to Network Connections and clicking on "wired connection"and them just closing the window. It will work for a bit but the conection will inevitably quit in a short time again. Interstingly it seems mostly a problem with web browsers as doing upgrades, package instalations, using SMXI and things of this sort do not seem to be a problem. I have tried both Epiphany and the Squeeze default Iceweasel with identical results. Also when using Google Earth a similar situation occurs in about 2 minuits of use. The same computer running Debian Lenny with Epiphany and WXP with the dreaded IE do not have this problem.
I have a Zotac Ionitx A-U. I can't get it to establish an internet connection with the wired ethernet within Ubuntu. The chip is detected, but trying to bring up the connection stalls out at trying to obtain a DHCP lease, like this:
DHCP DISCOVER ... DHCP DISCOVER ... No DHCPOFFERS received Specs: Ionitx A-U Ubuntu 10.04 x64 kernel 2.6.32-22 (also didn't work in 9.10)
I acquired an older hp compaq presario computer version 6310us, and initially installed mint, followed by Ubuntu 9.04. Neither one recognized the onboard ethernet port. I checked the bios, and LAN is enabled. It is also enabled in the drop down menu from the toolbar on the desktop. The cable works fine on other computers, and the light on the ethernet port flashes like it does when the cable is connected. I'm new to linux, so not sure what to do to get the connection working.
I recently did some troubleshooting on a USB wireless dongle hooked up to my Mint distro. I need the USB wireless to access a home DSL wireless modem out to the Internet. The wireless DSL is on 192.168.0.1
I also have a 10/100 ethernet NIC in the computer, for non-wireless connections. The wired ethernet is all 192.168.1.1. I noticed in /var/log/syslog that there are numerous "DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67" messages.
Since eth0 has a hard-coded IP, I dunno why DHCP is trying deal with it. Can I turn off DHCP activity against eth0? How to do that?
I'm running an up-to-date Fedora 12 machine with the Gnome desktop (meaning with Network Manager). My network connection is a wired ethernet to a switch which then connects to a Netgear router. For some reason, this machine can't renew its leases with DHCP, so NetworkManager deactivates eth0, taking my machine off the network. I have to click Network Manager and enable eth0, which seems to work every time.
How can I fix it? Here are the relevant bits from /var/log/messages showing a failed DHCP request and then the successful renewal.
Code: Aug 1 04:00:08 ironton dhclient: DHCPREQUEST on eth0 to 192.168.1.1 port 67 Aug 1 04:00:08 ironton dhclient: DHCPNAK from 192.168.1.1 Aug 1 04:00:08 ironton NetworkManager: <info> (eth0): DHCPv4 state changed reboot -> expire Aug 1 04:00:08 ironton NetworkManager: <info> (eth0): device state change: 8 -> 9 (reason 6) Aug 1 04:00:08 ironton NetworkManager: <info> Marking connection 'System eth0' invalid because IP configuration expired.
while my brother was browsing the web on my windows partition he had a blue screen pop up, one of the soft/hardware error ones, not a true BSOD, anyways, ever since my lan port on the computer seems to not be activiating as no wired connection is recognized. The lan port/card is directly attached to the Mother Board, it's a gigabyte motherboard in a self-build computer. I'm just wondering if there's anything I can do to troubleshoot this and see if it is truly a hardware problem or if its something else.
in linux world and have recently downloaded and installed ubuntu desktop 10.10i cannot connect to both wired and wireless ethernet on my laptopit tries to connect but fails in 30 seconds , it says"disconnected" while i am able to connect to the same in windows i have broadcom 4315 and i have tried both fwcutter and ndiswrapper but the problem persiststhe device id is 14e4:4315
